The Interrupters tells the moving and often surprising stories of three "Violence Interrupters" Ameena Matthews, Eddie Bocanegra, and Cobe Williams, who with bravado, humility, and even humor, work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. From acclaimed director Steve James (HOOP DREAMS) and bestselling author Alex Kotlowitz (THERE ARE NO CHILDREN HERE), this film is an unusually intimate journey into the stubborn persistence of violence in our cities. Shot over the course of a year, the Interrupters follows Ameena, Eddie, and Cobe as they attempt to intervene in disputes before they turn violent, including two brothers threatening to shoot each other, an angry teenage girl just home from prison, and a young man on a warpath of revenge. The film captures not only the Interrupters' work, but reveals their own inspired journeys from crime to hope and ultimately redemption.
